Polestar 6 ‘LA Concept’ was announced around two weeks ago, when 500 slots were open. Now, all the slots are booked for a vehicle that is set to release in the market by 2026. Polestar offers a fresh design and manufacturing process for its EVs, which is unique. The demand for vehicles is increasing over time.
In the fall of 2020, the automaker announced its Precept concept would be transitioned into a production model, even offering a documentary series following its design journey. A year later, Polestar confirmed our suspicions that the Precept would, in fact, be known as the Polestar 5 sports sedan. That EV recently made its first public (cameoed) debut at Goodwood Festival this past July, ahead of production in 2024.
In March, we attended a special unveiling in Los Angeles that showcased Polestar’s O² roadster concept, complete with a deployable autonomous drone and a sporty, compact, roadster body. Like the Precept, Polestar followed up with welcomed news earlier this month that the O² roadster concept would see scaled production as the Polestar 6 in 2026. This launch will begin with 500 numbered “LA Concept” editions of the Polestar 6, followed by more standard versions. Today, Polestar shared that, in less than a week, all 500 of those initial “LA Concept” versions have been spoken for.
High interest from customers
Polestar shared the news of encouraging demand for the Polestar 6 in a press release on Tuesday, stating that all 500 slots sold out within a week of the EVs production announcement on the wings of public debuts of the O² concept at the Quail and Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California. Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath shared in the excitement surrounding the upcoming roadster. “The high interest from our customers shows that a stunning electric roadster like Polestar 6 has high relevance in the sports car arena. The open-top-plus-electric combination is clearly one that appeals to even the most die-hard petrol heads.”
According to Polestar’s website, the “LA Concept” edition of the Polestar 6 will start at an “indicative” MSRP of $200,000 and require $25,000 down to secure one of the 500 available build slots. That already equates to $12.5 million in reservations alone.
If and when it launches in 2026, the “LA Concept” Polestar 6 features an exclusive Sky blue exterior and will be numbered 1 through 500 to mark its limited production run. Following the first 500 launch editions, Polestar will begin production of regular versions of the Polestar 6 roadster. The Swedish EV automaker said that because of the high initial demand for the “LA Concept” version of the Polestar 6, it plans to open reservations for the regular versions later in 2022. The next EV to arrive will be the Polestar 3 SUV, which will make its world debut in October.
